POLL: SUPPORT FOR SNP STANDING STRONG AS TORIES AND LABOUR FALL BEHIND

LEONARD’S LEADERSHIP ON THE ROCKS AS POLL SHOWS LABOUR WOULD LOSE SEATS AT ELECTION

The SNP have welcomed a new poll that shows support for the party is standing strong at Holyrood and Westminster – while the Tories and Labour continue to fall behind.

The Panelbase survey for the Sunday Times shows the SNP on 40% in the Holyrood constituency vote, with the Tories 12-points behind on 28%, and Labour 16-points behind in third place on 24%.

At Westminster, support for the SNP is up at 38%, while the Tories and Labour are both 11-points behind on 27% - a result that would see the SNP gain four seats, rising from 35 to 39, with Labour losing three of its seven seats, and the Tories losing one. 

The poll also shows support for independence holding firm, with a growing expectation among voters that Scotland will soon become independent. 

Commenting, SNP Business Convenor Derek MacKay MSP said:

“This is a strong endorsement of our record in government and our positive vision for the country, as people continue to put their trust in the SNP to deliver for Scotland.

“We will continue to drive forward our ambitious plans for Scotland – delivering the best public services anywhere in the UK, creating a fairer and more inclusive society, and working hard to grow the economy and secure greater prosperity.

”While the SNP is standing strong for Scotland, this poll will make dismal reading for the Tories and Labour who continue to fall behind - at a time when both parties are failing to stand up for devolution, and are intent on imposing a devastating hard Brexit, which will destroy jobs and damage living standards. 

“The SNP will never take our support for granted, and we will always work hard at Holyrood and Westminster to deliver the very best for Scotland.”
